Galia

Israel, 1992 (MIFF 1993, Documentary)

Director: Noa Harnik

Galia Holzmann was a student at Israel's Haifa University and commuted at weekends to stay with her boyfriend in Jerusalem. An ordinary, gentle student life until she developed an unexplainable rash. What happened then is the story of the film, told in her own words. It is a har­rowing, moving tale, recorded with strength on her behalf, and compassion by the filmmaker.
